    Tip: often having an important database in a couple different formats can ease the upgrade or recovery-from-disaster blues. For example, by saving a beloved document in both PDF, Word and RichText can allow for reimporting the data even if your program's toast. Can't always work with large databases, but often this can be a saving grace when speaking of generally-smaller personal data.

    Glad you got it all back. And, my apologies for the "birthrate" quip. Obviously it was an auto-correction type thing. I was just jerkin' your chain.

    There's another one from that same tome: "He who exalts himself is soon humbled."

    So take your pick: King David or the King of Kings.
